Fans of the reunited and back to work Coal Chamber will likely be super excited for this announcement about their upcoming 2015 tour and the bands that they will be bringing along for the ride. I’ve snagged the poster and provided a slightly abridged Press Release for you to all indulge in. Get thee reading.
Reactivated Los Angeles, California’s “Spooky Core” band COAL CHAMBER has announced a North American Headline Tour for Spring 2015. The tour is in support of their forthcoming album that will be released on Napalm Records. Support on the tour will come from Filter, Combichrist and American Head Charge. The tour begins March 6th in Tempe, AZ and runs through April 12th in Dallas, TX. COAL CHAMBER is currently in the studio working on their first studio album in over 12 years. The band is working with producer Mark Lewis (Whitechapel, DevilDriver, Black Dahlia Murder) on the yet still untitled album, which is tentatively slated for a Spring 2015 release. COAL CHAMBER is a band stood as leaders at the forefront of new genres, constantly reinventing their sound and not fitting any mold except their own. With sold out tours, and millions of records sold, COAL CHAMBER owned the Scene from the mid-nineties until their tumultuous breakup in May of 2002. Now they have returned to take their place at the top where they once were and intend to be there for years to come. Call it what you want, “The Return”, “The Second Coming of”, but no matter what you call it, be prepared COAL CHAMBER to rule again.
Let’s check out those tour dates, the NYC contingent is probably going to be over the moon that this run will be hitting Webster Hall and adding to this particular venues great list of Metal shows to come.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: While I cannot say that I was the biggest advocate of Coal Chamber during their initial heyday, I did get to see them last year during a co-headlining bill with Sevendust and I had to say that they sounded great and were really connecting with their fans. It was super impressive to watch from the sidelines and see the reaction that the diehards for their sound were giving back to Dez and the group back on the stage. I’ve seen both Combichrist and American Head Charge in concert over the years and each of these groups knows how to deliver and while I have never managed to catch Filter they are a long standing name in Alt-Hard Rock that brings some promising tenure to the mix. I think it will be fun to catch this show when it hits our Metal Metropolis so what do you readers think about this one? Chime in where the comments go because I would love to hear from you about it.
